Why I Relay

Why I Relay

Cancer affects all of us. During this time, it is especially important to think about patients who may struggle in different ways. This year, my team’s donations will specifically go towards childhood cancer research. Every donation matters, no matter the size 

I relay for my parents and my grandparents. Since I was little, I always knew what this disease was. My mother lost her father due to this vicious disease before I was born. My grandmother battled skin cancer, but I am lucky to still have her with us today. My family has always had to deal with this disease, and I relay to support them.

I relay for myself and other cancer survivors. During my freshman year of high school, I was diagnosed with cancer. I underwent months of treatment, including surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Treatment was the hardest thing that I ever had to deal with; it took up many months of my life, and not only impacted me, but everyone around me.  I am lucky to have made it through. I relay for myself, and every other cancer survivor, so that we can make treatment easier for everyone else.

I relay so that no one else has to suffer as I did. So no parents have to watch their kids go through this. So that no kids have to watch their parents go through this. So that no one has to see a friend, relative, or anyone in the world suffer from this disease.

Thank you for the support, and help us win this fight.

Thank You Donors

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
